We just started using the Confluence Knowledge Base Survey plugin. I use the survey macro on all our knowledge base articles. Those articles are also searched when someone reports a new issue through JIRA Service Desk. When you type in your summary, a list of knowledge base articles is shown. When you select one, the article is viewed in a popup.
The problem is that in this popup view, the survey macro is not rendered and gives an error. Below is a snippet of the error in the log file.
Anyone an idea how to fix this, because it is rather ugly when you view the article in Service Desk, although I really like the feedback functionality in Confluence.

Update: as we are using Service Desk more and more, I see a lot of these errors in the logs. I went out to look for a solution again and found that there has been some activity on the development of the plugin (https://bitbucket.org/atlassianlabs/confluence-kb-survey-plugin/commits/tag/knowledgebase-survey-1.4.2), which might have resolved my error. There is however no new version of the plugin available, so I am now trying to reach one of the developers to see if they can make a new version available.
